Steel City Underground presents “Plays of the Year” featuring the tops runs, catches, hits and everything else in-between for the Steelers 2016 season.
The idea that the Steelers struggle on the road got blown to pieces in this game. Pittsburgh made the short trip to Buffalo, to face a team which sported a top-ranked rushing offense and a top-ranked rushing defense.
Yes, the Bills could both run the football and stop teams from running it. Pair the concept with the wintery backdrop that has become a staple of Buffalo, and the Steelers were all but doomed.
Or were they?
The Bills looked nothing like a team who could prevent another team from running the football. In fact, they looked like they’ve never played in the snow, and never faced a rushing attack all season, as Steelers running back Le’Veon Bell plowed through the Buffalo defense for a record-setting day which left him two yards shy of 300 yards from scrimmage, a performance only duplicated by one other player in NFL history: Jim Brown.
